The Bandit's Mission . How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol hoards got board? . It seems like I have endless pieces now that Luseville is gone...*sniff* The title "The Bandit's Mission" does not mean that the bandits have mission, but rather that the bandits have a Spanish Mission on the coast of old Florida. Beginning in the sixteenth century, the Kingdom of Spain established a number of missions throughout la Florida in order to convert the Indians to Christianity, to facilitate control of the area and to prevent its colonization by other countries, in particular, England and France. The first Spanish missions to the Indians of la Florida began soon after the founding of St. Augustine in 1565. In this case, the Spanish Mission has been long abandoned and re-claimed by a pair of poor bandits, who have turned it into a hideout/armory. The sea cave serves as a perfect lookout with carved stairs from the Spanish. At first I was going to put 1x2s all along the top of all the walls like regular castles, but then I did some research on Spanish Missions, and I found that most of the stone ones had the top of the walls completely flat and smooth. (Thus the tiles) As seen through the back... ...the bottom floor is grass, as it is somewhat of a courtyard. The bell tower and the long balcony have been long closed off from ground access to keep anything - or anyone - from ringing there bell, thereby ruining the hideout. Here's a nice shot of the courtyard from above... Nice front shot... Nice side shot... And now...The cave! Please ignore the poor quality pictures and lighting. Where's Alex Eylar when you need him? All of the inside of the cave is SNOT...Actually, I built the rock first THEN the building, both of which I built on the same weekend. The carved stairs... Here's a really bad picture of the inside. Sorry I didn't have many of the interior, this was one of those projects that you start out wanting to make a DARKspawn inside, but end up making it really cramped. *Sigh* We're having a massive snow storm right now...that's why I'm posting. =) I kinda wish I lived in...Florida? Then I could get away from all the snow AND look at some Spanish Missions. This picture... ...this one... ...and this one, were taken with my brothers brand new camera. I didn't know how to work it. =) Well, thanks for looking! The next time I'll post at all will probably be after Christmas, unless something good pops into my head, so don't be expecting something huge anytime soon. =) Merry Christmas!
